1:00am
tom. that's three. >> are you kid something. >> three babies. >> oh my gosh. >> in new york that's like having 80. >> back to you, andy. >> thanks, tom, thanks remi, bill, gavin, dennis. that's it for me. see you tomorrow. now. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight -- >> finally, somebody is cracking down on big bird. elmo has been seen in a white suburban. he's driving for the border. >> bill: president obama mocking governor romney about want to go stop federal subsidies for public broadcasting. is that a winning issue? we will have a special report. outrageous photo published by the associated press. wait 'til you hear the story behind this, pardon the pun. it will make you angry. charles krauthammer has some thoughts. >> can i meet new the middle? 85? not quite the middle, but close to the middle. >> all right. what the heck.
1:01am
i like this thing. 85 it is. >> bill: will the supreme court stop we, the people, from selling our own property? it's in play. is it legal? on the case. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thank you for watching us tonight. mitt romney versus the kids. that is the sum of this evening's talking points memo. what i am about to tell you is very hard to believe, but every word of it's true. yesterday mitt romney was campaigning in virginia when he saw a group of children we'ving at him from the side of the road. the governor ordered his caravan to stop so he could greet the kids and talk with them, a nice thing to do. here is the photo the associated press took at the meet and greet. a foolish shot that makes romney the butt of stupid jokes.
1:02am
pardon the pun. the picture was taken by photographer evan vucci and never been published. the governor doesn't know there is a child behind him. this is a cheap shot, literally. accompanying the photograph was an article by a.p. reporter lynn elber that chided him for not participate not guilty a nickelodeon special called kids pick the president. a program will be hosted by linda ellerby, a committed leftist and president obama has agreed to appear on it. governor says he passed because the scheduling, but he well knows that she and her crew are devoted obama supporters, so that's the real reason he isn't showing up. the a.p. reporter not exactly miss objectivity. she called clint eastwood's republican convention performance odd ball, unquote. she also wrote a very pro-pbs piece, but failed to cite government subsidies to that network. the former chairman of the board of the associated press, william dean singleton, last april
1:03am
introduced president obama at the annual a.p. lunch onby saying, quote, the president inherited the head winds of the worst economic recession since the great depression. he pushed through congress the biggest economic recovery plan in history, and on and on and on. a glowing introduction. now the a.p. is one of the largest news wire services in the world. and it's biased against mitt romney. i think that's true, beyond a reasonable doubt. local newspapers all over the usa carry a.p. photos and articles every day. that's a huge advantage for president obama. and perhaps the best example of what the national media has become in america. the obama campaign believes governor romney made a big mistake by saying he would stop federal money to pbs and npr. this morning, this ad was released. >> bernie madoff, dennis kozlowski, criminals, gluttons of greed. and the evil genius who towered over one man has the guts o speak his
1:04am
name. >> big bird, big bird. >> big, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about. it's sesame street. >> i'm going to stop this subsidy to pbs. >> mitt romney, taking on our enemies no matter where they nest. >> bill: now, the sesame workshop, which controls the image of big bird, asked the democrats to pull the ad. saying it's nonpartisan, doesn't want to get involved in that. this year the corporation for public broadcasting will receive $444 million. $444 million in taxpayer funding. that's money the nation does not have to spend. especially facing a trillion dollars budget deficit and a $16 trillion national debt. jon stewart and i debated the issue on saturday. >> the reason that we invest in things like public television is that it brings educational programs to communities that would not have them. it's one of the best investments we ever made in the country. >> bill: $16 trillion and we got to pay for bill moyer.
1:05am
let him compete on his own. you want educational programs, watch your program! spring for the cable, all right. let him compete on his own! come on. >> bill o'reilly is identified $130 million from npr because npr should be able to compete on its own. >> bill: correct. >> bill: to be clear, national public radio, npr, is part, just part of the public broadcasting umbrella in which again it's receiving close to $450 million this year alone. assisting governor romney's weak points, president obama apparently thinks he has an opportunity with this controversy. >> finally somebody is cracking down on big bird. elmo has been seen in a white suburban, he's driving for the border. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again, but
1:06am
he's going to bring the hammer down on sesame street. >> bill: two things. the might suburban reference is to o. j. simpson and a wall street running wild line is very interesting, isn't it? the president is seen in conservative precinctness as being anti-capitalism. few years ago, that would have been dangerous territory for any politician. but now things have changed. the recession was brought on largely by greedy wall street corporations. trafficking in bogus mortgage paper. the folks know they're suffering because of wall street excess. that's all true. but what we are seeing now is the baby out with the bath water syndrome. instead of reforming wall street with effective oversite, mr. obama and the left continue to attack it. corporate america is seen in some liberal quarters as the enemy. the left wants the government to largely control the entire economy as it wants the feds to
1:07am
control health care. that has led the private sector, the job creators, to be overly cautious and has prehave not add robust economic -- prevented a robust economy. john stossel will have proof coming up. the associated press and other national media should be concentrating on is the battle between capitalism and kasay socialism that's taking place between the two presidential candidates. that's the real story in this election. but the a.p. and others are now so invested, so invested in reelecting president obama that fair, responsible and insightful reporting has nearly vanished. of course, mr. obama is benefitting from that. that's a memo. next on the run down, crowly and ems could on the cheap shot against mitt romney. is it legal on a supreme court decision that could take away our right to sell our own property! not going to believe it. we
1:08am
1:09am
1:10am
1:11am
>> bill: continuing with our lead story. the cheap shot taken by the associated press against mitt romney. colmes, who should be fired at the a.p.? >> nobody should be fired. you want to fire the guy who took the dukakis picture in the tank. what about the biker chick on his lap? >> bill: you know, you're much smarter than i am. you're comparing the biden picture with the biker chick on his lap and the michael dukakis picture where he put himself in the tank? are you comparing those two pictures? >> yes, i am saying -- >> bill: you are comparing them. >> a.p. provided six different pictures. >> bill: wait, wait. now, here is how that is so grossly unfair. romney had no idea that little girl is behind her. the little girl was looking at something completely different. so romney did not put himself in a tank. and he did not put a biker chick on his lap. that's the difference. this is a total accident that
1:12am
this happened. the associated press captured it and then in a very sleazy way, used it to denigrate mr. romney. >> glenn beck's web site say they provided six pictures. >> bill: that never, ever should have been published. >> the editors who chose to publish them -- >> bill: whoever sent that out, whatever person sent that out, if i were in charge of the a.p. would have been fired. >> you don't think they want to move copy, move products -- >> bill: i don't care. you have to make -- if you're an honest person, you have to make editorial judgments that. is appalling. >> there used to be something called jumpistic responsibility. >> bill: and the a.p. in particular it used to be. >> editorial discretion. what we see here is a deliberate attempt to yet again make a republican candidate for president look bad. >> bill: right. they would not have done that to president obama. we all know that. so the person who did that at the associated press who put
1:13am
that picture out on the wire should be fired and the associated press should put out an apology, which they will after tonight. i guarantee you the associated press will be so embarrassed tomorrow that they will apologize for that appalling display. but it disturbs me that you, who you generally a nice guy, think that that's acceptable behavior in this country! >> i'm not saying -- i don't think it was a purposeful act on the part of the associated press -- >> come on. >> bill: is there anybody in the country that agrees with that? >> the girl is looking at something else. >> bill: that's right! >> obviously. >> the ap reissue add second caption. >> bill: so what! this makes me angry. you're justifying that. you won't condemn it. it's obviously the worst possible abuse that the a.p. is doing. not only are they exploiting that child, all right, and if i were the child's parents, believe me, i'd have a lawyer on the phone, but they're trying to run down a guy that they
1:14am
obviously don't want to see win. >> this is a huge overreaction. >> bill: this is what the media is right now. >> look, the associated press has always been on the left. they've always opposed conservative. but this particular image, number one, it was put out to make romney literally look like an ass and secondly, i agree with you. this borders on child abuse with this child. it is -- >> bill: it's not -- colmes, if you have a 12-year-old daughter, you want to put her in that position? >> i don't think it was intentional. >> bill: oh, com -- come on! they see the picture! they see the girl's face! you don't think it's intentional it's garbage. >> let me do this purposefully. >> bill: you take picture like this and you throw it away because it's -- there is nothing worthy about it! >> it was not intentional on the a.p.'s part and they clearly -- >> bill: that's insane!
1:15am
>> it's a different caption when they relled it was an issue. >> the damage is already done. >> it was not purposeful. >> bill: we're not going to get through. now, the vice presidential debate coming up on thursday, i don't think it means anything. you say? >> no, i think you're wrong about this because remember, president obama had a disasterous performance last week. so now there is added pressure on joe biden to actually super perform to try to make up some ground, the ground that obama lost since last week. >> bill: he can't possibly supper perform. >> you've got two things going on. it's east got a generational difference between biden who is 69 and the young paul ryan who is 42. the other thing is on the issue, you'll have a striking difference because biden is saddled with defending an economic record that failed. he's going up against the nation's top budget guy. >> bill: he's not going to say, obviously, the president will say it's succeeding. this is what the debate is. here is why i don't think it matters and then you can reply. people don't vote for vice
1:16am
president. this is all about romney and obama. this is what it is. biden is a known quantity. he's a very devoted liberal man. he's not going to go off the talking points. even though he once in a while he'll ad lib and get in trouble, here they're basically hitting him on the head right now. do not go off the talking points. do not say anything. >> i agree with you -- >> bill: ryan also has to be very, very careful, very careful. he has to stay in his realm of expertise, which is finance. but he can't really be provocative. i don't think this -- let colmes say. >> i think there will be added scrutiny on this because of what happened and because of the very poor performance of obama in the first debate. i believe there will be added scrutiny on the vice president. >> bill: you got baseball playoffs and you've got nfl game up against it. you had 75 million people look at it on the presidential. i'd say half will view this. >> here is the difference with paul ryan. very rarely do you get either a presidential or vice presidential candidate who is the actual author of the entire
1:17am
intellectual framework of the party. that's paul ryan. >> bill: but he can't come across as a pinhead. what's to come across with these numbers -- >> this is a guy who is a borderline professional athlete. he's very cool. he listens on his ipad. >> bill: he lost it with a reporter today. >> no, he did not. that reporter was trying to put words in his mouth. >> bill: i know, but they do it all the time. >> they could have handled it a lot better. romney has been weak on specifics. ryan has specifics. they're going to tie whatever specifics he has to romney. >> ryan is going to be brilliant. >> bill: whatever they do, it's a matter of i think both candidates will be very, very cautious. the reason i say that ryan lost it today was because you have to assume if you're ryan or romney that the press wants to hurt you, no matter who it is. when they do something as this reporter did, that was pretty stupid, you just laugh about it. come on. you roll your eyes. you don't react in a serious way because then that will be used against you. all right. >> remember, beating up on the
1:18am
left wing press works to the republican candidate's advantage every time. >> bill: if i had done that, if he said listen, you pinhead, that was an unfair question. but it looked like he wanted to get away from him so it didn't look good. later, john stossel on why some companies are hurting their workers over obamacare. interesting report. plus, selling your stuff. very quietly the supreme court may stop us from that! is it legal? moments away
1:19am
1:20am
1:21am
>> bill: in the impact segment, there is no question the romney campaign now has momentum because of the first debate.
1:22am
the daily rasmussen poll out has the race again tied at 48. the governor moved up in states like pennsylvania and michigan where he was losing ground before the debate
1:23am
>> a poor place to be for a couple of reasons. number one, is head to head number was under 47 before the debate. it's very difficult when you have a known quantity to claw up to 50. so that was a very, very poor place for him to be. so we're looking at this polling data not only in florida, but in virginia and in north carolina and it's overwhelming. the other part of the florida poll is that there are 12 candidates on the ballot. and if you look, a lot of people don't think of it as a two-person race. when you look at the votes for the third party candidates, they're second choice is romney by a long shot. so as those votes convert to romney or obama -- >> bill: you're say not guilty in a fellow, there is people who
1:24am
can't win and those people who are thinking of voting to them and don't waste their vote, will most likely break for the governor so that gives him an advantage. that's very interesting. so the polling has written off florida, virginia, and north carolina for the governor. that's huge. >> that's right. and it's true. it gives the lead to barak obama, but only 257-248. >> bill: you segueway into ohio and iowa, colorado and nevada. i would say new hampshire is going to go romney. i think new hampshire will go romney. that's only three. but i think that that states will go for the governor, too. >> not clear right now. i still have that as blue and until we see some polling data, we're in the field right now in nevada releasing on thursday. we'll have a better picture about nevada. colorado i think is mitt romney's best chance because in iowa, a lot of the early voting has gone to barak obama by a
1:25am
wide number. and -- >> bill: how do you know that? you know that by exit polling? >> no. you can tell it by the registration of the people who have requested absentee ballots. >> bill: they're more democrats than republicans have requested early voting. >> by a wide margin. and in ohio, it's the opposite. not the opposite, but it's less of an advantage for the democrats than it was in 2008 where barak obama built a huge lead in ohio in the early voting in 2009 over john mccain. >> bill: he hasn't done it this time. >> it's not happening. no, it hasn't. and the margin is very low and that's potentially a problem because we've got another week to go. >> bill: the problem for whom? >> problem for barak obama. >> bill: when you say it is potentially a proximate it looks like you may be rooting for the president. i know you're not. that's why we have you on the air. we know do you a fair job. let's go to the widely watched
1:26am
brown-warren race, which has the latest polling as brown up by 3. but then in another poll has warren up. who is going to weapon? >> too close to call. in our poll we had warren plus four with the error rate. the number that was interesting was the president's margin, only 16 points. a lot of the other polling, including suffolk, the president was polling higher. scott brown needs to get one in four obama voters to cross over. that's the challenge because it was 25% in may. it was only 19% in the september poll. so that's the big challenge for scott brown is getting people who are going to vote for barak obama to cross over and -- >> bill: when will you poll again on that race? >> we've got two other states to poll. so it will be the end of october. so it's a little bit of a wait. >> bill: we'll have you back when that happens 'cause i know there is another debate between
1:27am
the two. that's a very fascinating race. david, thank you very much. we appreciate it. plenty more ahead as "the factor" moves along. private property and the supreme court, will the court rule that we, the people, can't sell some of our own stuff? could happen. is it legal is investigating. later, charles krauthammer on the a.p.'s cheap shot and panic, charles says, among the obama campaign people. we hope you stay tuned for those reports.
1:28am
1:29am
1:30am
1:31am
>> bill: stossel matters segment segment. have you ever eaten at the olive garden or red lobster or in a longhorn steak house? those are chains are owned by the darten company, which is reacting to obamacare in a way that does not favor american workers. here to explain it all to us, fox business anchor, john stossel. what is red lobster and olive garden doing? >> i don't blame them. the law says if you have more than 50 workers, full-time workers, then you must provide affordable health insurance. of course, calling it affordable doesn't mean it's affordable to you as the employer. it's going up all the time. so they're saying, i'll hire part-time workers. >> bill: so in any restaurant of any size in a mall or olive garden or red lobster, you have a number of shifts, lunch and dinner, you probably going to have more than 50 employees, probably. >> 180,000 employees. >> bill: but i'm saying at every single restaurant.
1:32am
you have the restaurant, you have one in orlando, florida. if you have 50 or more, then you have to buy health insurance from the government under obamacare. >> not from the government. but you either have to go to the government plan or the government makes you buy private health insurance. >> bill: so either the government plan or the private, but you're mandated to buy it? >> or pay a penalty. >> bill: if you don't. >> 2, 3,000 bucks. >> bill: okay. in order to go under the 50, they're giving people part-time work. >> which means less than 30 hours a week. 28 hours in their case. >> bill: why is that bad? >> it's bad because more people want full time work. and it steers people into shorter time jobs. >> bill: all right. so the individual worker doesn't make as much money even if they want to. then they have to get another part-time job, someplace else to make up for the shortfall. so it makes -- the whole thing makes it rougher for the folks,
1:33am
for the working folks. >> all government mandates do. >> i know. you always come back to that. >> bill: this is actually constraining the economic recovery by keeping unemployment artificially high. >> and i would say all of them do. if you're a company with 49 employees, why would you hire a 50th person? >> bill: you wouldn't. >> you fall under obamacare and a host of other programs. >> bill: sure, you want to keep it under 50. so you could do your own thing, like you have. >> right. >> bill: when you say this to a liberal person, they just give you a blank stare, you know. >> oh, but we have to cover these people. these companies, they're evil, they're so rich, they're making so much money. >> bill: but you can't force the company to cover the people that are uninsured if they're under 50 employees. that's the law that was passed. >> well, soon they'll change the law and make it for 20 employees. who knows ha they'll do? it's all in the public interest and they don't see the consequences. >> bill: there always are consequences to any intrusion or
1:34am
mandate, always. you force somebody to do something, then something else will happen. you see this as a widespread thing, everywhere? >> sure. one other example, the card act. everybody was so mad about they're charging high fees for writing a check or credit card. we outlawed this. we helped you. i think it was bipartisan. the result is that credit card interest rates went up 2%. >> bill: don't they have a cap on those interest rates? >> no, 18 or something like that. >> bill: they went up to 15 from 13%. >> bill: the government forced those companies to bring their fees down, this raised the interest rates. >> and jpmorgan chase cut off customers and said we're not going to issue cards. >> bill: unintended consequences when we come back, can jerry sandusky sentenced. the supreme court may limit our right to sell stuff. stossel will love this. and it looks like jessica's law will pass in new jersey.

1:38am
>> bill: thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly. three important topics beginning with the monster jerry san sand convicted of mow testing ten young boys while coaching football. today he was sentenced to
1:39am
between 30 and 60 years in prison. that's life. here now attorneys and fox news analyst, kimberly guilfoyle. he we want down in a pitiful way. >> yes. he absolutely disgraceful. not only it he not apologize to the ten victims, he wasn't beyond that and in a recorded statement, he said basically they conspired against me. it was a con conspiracy. >> bill: -- he didn't do anything. he never had sex with anybody but his wife and that was after they were married. it was pitiful. then these five boys, three of them actually came in with statements and two of them were read. had to take the stand and look at him, stare at him and talk to the court about how he had treated them. i mean, it was -- >> bill: a lot of people, and i'm sure you've seen that because you were a prosecutor in san francisco. >> yeah. >> bill: the sociopathic increaser narcissus and almost delewd themselves, i didn't do it. no, no. i didn't too it. and they almost talk themselves into it. deep in their heart they got to know. >> they really think they're the
1:40am
victims in this case and i worked extensively with child abuse cases prosecuting those and people like this actually physically disgust me. >> bill: they disgust everybody. >> i think they should amend the law. like life isn't good enough for this guy. >> bill: you know what? i just want to make a comment, i'm against the death penalty. but if you commit a heinous crime like murder or rape orlesd sentence you to hard labor. >> this isn't a lot of time, relatively speaking. >> bill: this guy, sandusky, he's going to be in solitary. he's not -- because if he's walking around, somebody will kill him. >> right. >> bill: like jeffrey dahmer. how long did he last? 15 minutes. >> it's the most represencible crime. >> bill: they'll kill him if they see him. this guy will be rotting in the chill and well he should. this is bizarre. the supreme court is hearing a case and you have to make it simple so i can understand it.
1:41am
hearing a case that if they rule one way, would say to us, we the people, hey, you can't sell your own stuff if it's made overseas. >> that's right. called -- it existed since 9:08 when it was recognized. there is a split among the circuit courts, the second, third, and the 9th. a lot of disparity in the law. bottom line, supreme court is going to hear it and hopefully will rule correctly that you're able to sell your things like personal electronic, ipad, cars if they're foreign made would be subjected to this. >> bill: what is the rationale for any judge to say to me i can't sell my stuff? >> well, the second circuit got it wrong but the rationale is copyright law. once you buy that thing from the foreign maker, that you owe the foreign maker, if you try to resell it to somebody else. >> bill: why? he's selling the product to me. it's like look, it's my books. i sell the book to the public
1:42am
and if the public buys the book and wants to resell, i can't stop him. >> but the difference is the 1908 doctrine doesn't apply necessarily to foreign products. >> bill: why? why? it's a product! i know. but in 1908 doctrine, they weren't thinking about ebay. >> bill: this is crazy, we're a free country. if you buy something, it's your property, you can sell it. >> that's why i think the supreme court took it on. >> bill: they have to deliberate on it? >> they'd have to because the second circuit said they were wrong. >> this is insane. >> bill: we're in a friday -- free country. if you buy it, you can sell it. then they go home and take another four-month vacation. they're good at that. we have to hear arguments about that. >> because the second circuit -- >> bill: i don't care about the second circuit! she's just a pinhead athlete. she just likes to say the word
1:43am
circuit. that's all she wants to do. here it is. if you pinheads in the supreme court rule that i can't sell my stuff, i don't care if it was mid in lithuania, doesn't matter, civil disobedience. i'm selling it 'cause you say i can't. all right? nobody is going to obey that law. nor should they. but the foreign car industry, bye. bye. if they ever ruled that, audi, bmw, mercedes, honda, see you! so ford and gm, they're probably, yes! yes! >> i got a ford explorer. >> little garage sales. >> bill: you ladies finished? good. jessica's law. everybody knows "the factor" is behind it. new jersey looks like they've got it going. >> passed through the senate. it's now in the assembly. so it hasn't passed yet, but it looks like it may be close to
1:44am
patsing. >> bill: this is nothing. it takes like four months -- >> but it's taken seven years. >> bill: once we went after new jersey, they kicked it into high gear and now we expect chris christie to sign it. >> yes. >> bill: in new york where we are right now, you call governor cuomo today, right? >> at this. i called his spokesperson. no response. >> bill: no response? who is the spokesperson? >> richard bamburger. >> bill: and he wouldn't -- >> wouldn't respond. when i first called, i was told he was in a meeting for half an hour and then i said i was from fox news. and then when i called dash dash. >> bill: the half hour we want for four days. arrogant? right? andrew cuomo, arrogant with a capital a. big a. arrogant, governor. arrogant. you want to run for president four years, i know you do. we're going to remember. this is ridiculous. >> it's shameful that -- >> bill: they won't even address
1:45am
it. like new jersey, they addressed it over there. okay? hey, protect the kids, governor! , you know. you have some. protect them. no excuse for this. i'm really hot about this. you keep calling, every day. >> every day. >> bill: every day you call. bamburger. you call him, every day and report back next week. >> okay. >> bill: you call him, too. there he is. you see him? need a hair cut, rich. all right. wil would like to you know her new thriller, very frightening, is in the marketplace right now. if you buy a copy of my book, you will get wil's book free of charge. what a deal. in a moment, charles krauthammer on the associated press cheap shotting mitt romney. charles moments

>> bill: back of the book set. as we reported at the top of the program, the a.p. used a unflattering photo of mitt romney accompanied by a article about him. we want to know what charles cars thinks about it and the wider implication. i'm really angry about this a.p. thing because of the use of a child in the picture. it's inexcusable. and i expect the a.p. to apologize tomorrow. what do you think? >> i don't think they'll apologize. they've always -- they've been slanted in this entire campaign for obama, much more than the rest of the press trying to drag obama over the finish line. and this picture fits in it. but let me try to assuage your anger. the reason is this is such a ridiculous photo, i mean, mitt romney, he's about the most straight-laced and polite, clean guy on the planet. i mean, for god's sake, the guy
1:50am
doesn't drink coffee. and the suggestion here is what, he's trying to make a rude gesture? i won't even use the word to an eight-year-old girl? clearly, the reader looks at that and knows that this is mischief cooked up by the photographer and by the editor. it's a kind of photo shop, not literally so, but using an event where the figures are obviously disconnected implying there is a connection as a way to embarrass romney. i think its net effect is not affect on romney. >> bill: i agree with you it doesn't affect him at all and nobody but a zealot and crazy person u about there are plenty of them out there, but it doesn't matter. they don't have to do much with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. the associated press used to be a proud organization and it still has the widest reach of any print wire service in the country. to too something like this, all right, that is shameful of the it's just shameful.
1:51am
how bad is it going to go? how low is the media going to go? that's a question we're dealing with right now. >> you know, in the old days, a.p. didn't have all that competition. it was the source of news. u.p.i., but it was one of the main sources of news. but now with the internet, they're fighting for their lives. so they adopted some years ago a new business model. they were going to be more interpretive. well, you know what happens. we know what the media are. they're overwhelmingly liberal. they pretend to be objective. the fact checking and the truth spar is rubbish. it's a new label on their own perspectives. you're allowed to be a liberal. inevitably, if you're going to be interpretive and people are going to remember you as a news source and not realize that you're now interpretive, what you're giving is opinion filtered under the pretense of news and that's what they do. >> bill: all right. you have put forth that there is
1:52am
panic -- your word -- within the obama campaign. explain that. >> number one, look at the polls. they're dropping like a stone for obama. and why is this happening? the reason is they had created an entire narrative about romney. hundreds and millions of dollars of ads showing him as an unfeeling, uncaring man who delights in killing steelworkers' wives, in raising faxes on the middle class, lowering them on the rich. much of this has gone unresponded to by romney. so here you have a debate. the one time when romney can address 67 million americans unfiltered by the media and with no ads to clutter it up and utterly demolishes the straw man of romney. >> bill: of obama. >> i moon of obama, with argument issues with fact. i heard one liberal commentator say this morning, well, romney
1:53am
won stylistically. this wasn't stylistic. are you kidding snow obama is the most charismatic person since rasputin and the other side is romney who his friends affectionately call on android. he won on an avalanche of fact which took apart the narrative. he showed he's not going to raise taxes on the middle class. he showed again and again that the share of taxes the rich pay will remain the same under him and you take away this straw man, you take away the idea of the capitalist who cares for no one and there is nothing left in the obama campaign. he can't run on stewardship or the path and he he can't run on the future 'cause he doesn't have a program. he can't kill romney, he's got nothing. >> bill: the reaction from obama campaign to the debate debauchle for them was to call the governor a liar, unquote. that doesn't seem to be working and they backed away from that
1:54am
now. or am i reading it wrong? >> they may or may not have backed away. but they're in a panic as to what do they do? they're only resort, up to now. they went through a phase of excuses, a couple were that the burdens of office on that debate were so high, you know, appearing on "the view," hanging out with beyonce and jay-z. >> bill: i could tell you what a burden that is. >> it lays heavily on the brow of the crown, or whatever that is. can't remember the quote. then and the other excuse is, he was off his game. he want off his game. that is his game. obama is a very intelligent game. >> bill: i think he was preoccupied by something. i've gone up against him twice and he much, much livelier with me, much quicker with me than he was in that debate. he was preoccupied with something. maybe we'll find out. >> no, no. i think you are too generous. this is a man who -- >> bill: you know me. >> i know. i saw it with you and stewart.
1:55am
when you took him on your nap, he needed comforting. >> bill: i didn't take him on my lap. he imposed himself. >> all i got was an eight piece snapshot, so how could i tell? >> bill: i know. i'm glad they didn't shoot it from behind. charles cars, everybody. factor tip of the day, it will once again, help your life. the at this point 60 seconds away
1:56am
>>. >> president obama has racked up nearly $6 trillion in 3
1:57am
>> it's obviously a jest, john. but the paper's the ferghtest leaning left in great britain and you know it.
